MELANCHOLIA


Melancholia, video, 2:20, 2014.
Melancholia is a trailer-remake of the film Melancholia by Lars von Trier. I used the soundtrack from the original movie to mix it with old VHS materials of my parents. Von Trier raises essential existential issues surrounding human life: What is a catastrophe? How does a person react to the impending doom? I decided to create a peculiar omen of THE END - a real ending of love between my parents intertwined with a fictional story of the end of the planet we live on.
